Re: Flash lube with premium unleaded

I've used it ,but I normaly run it with optimax, the coupe runs much better and has more power with it, but with stock clevo's I normaly just run them on premium,as it's normally about the the price as the lrp anyway.

Re: Flash lube with premium unleaded

Yeah I use it with a bottle operating on vaccum straight to carby. I need this setup as I have dual fuel. If you don't have this setup add to the fuel at a ratio of 1ml per litre. 50L of fuel would be 50ml. Doesn't stuff anything up, plugs look good and no fuel line or filter blockages.

Check out the flash lube site its a proven winner, even with unleaded cars that have hardened valve seats, less wear occurs and meant to have a little more power, not that I've seen any.

They might be recycling the lead out of the batteries.

Re: Flash lube with premium unleaded

how many of these aditives are both a octane booster and lead replacement?

this stuff is the real thing- same old (highly toxic) tetraethyl lead...best thing on earth for old iron, although not good for the earth in general...the way they describe it, if mixed right its all supposed to burn up...yeah right.

I dont think anything to beat lead for BOTH octane increase AND valve lubriation has been found yet.
